Emiliano Sala - Cardiff Face Transfer Ban

Recommended Posts

Really not sure what to make of this.

We need a striker, but for someone who is late 20's and has not played outside of France (as far as I'm aware) sounds like a desperation signing.

On top of that, if this signing does go ahead, where in actual fuck was this money in the summer if we had it available?

The sensible bet pre season was to expect relegation.

However as things stand, perhaps the board now think there's actually a decent chance of surviving another season so it's worth risking a bit of money to improve the chances?

Perhaps, but considering that we paid about £30m overall for Reid, Murphy, Cunningham and Smithies in the summer (excluding any possible loan fees for Arter and Camarasa), this just appears to have come out of the blue.

That's a lot of money for someone unproven outside of France and approaching 30. 

The only thing you can be sure of is, he's big and tall which suits Warnock's 'get it in the mixer' football.

Personally think that's way too much for someone like Cardiff to pay for someone of his age and someone without that great a track record before this season but he does seem like the kind of striker Warnock likes - maybe it's an element of them feeling like this is the final piece of the jigsaw so it could be excused if he scored the goals to keep them up.

Having seen plenty of it myself though I am massively against paying a lot of money for players aged 28+. It's dead money if they flop.

Looks like this deal may be close to being done...........with one caveat.

Nantes want him to play against Angers on Sunday. We want him for Newcastle on Saturday.

Whilst he can be a bit of a barn door sometimes, he's not without skill and technique. I would say though against teams with defenders who are quick on the deck and strong in the air, he's not going to be a problem for them. In Ligue 1 some of the standard of defending is hilariously bad. I'd be surprised if he scores anymore than 5 goals to be honest.

He'd be our top goalscorer then. Worth every penny. :ph34r:

Oh fuck, hopefully he’s alright and wasn’t on that plane, but there’s got to be a reason they’ve said there’s genuine concern...

Also these kind of planes and copters (single-engine) are dangerous and should be discontinued, a minimum of two engines and parachutes should be mandatory for every aircraft.

Just been reading about this. Doesn't look good at all does it. Can only see this story ending one way unfortunately but I sincerely hope not!

I have to say I've been on 4 planes in the past month and I just want to get off them every single time out of fear. These type of news certainly doesn't help my cause. Enough about me though, I really hope Sala and whoever else was on that plane is OK. Things don't look good but I agree with Berserker, every plane needs to have quadruple checks if not more and have all sorts of emergency outputs.

I think these aircraft need to be relegated to training and that's literally where it should end. Using them for cost-saving or shorter trips is just risky. I hope everything turns out okay in the end for everyone on-board.

Yeah like a flying simulator, but only on land.

Hope he's alright.

Possibility he's just realised he's got to play under Neil Warnock and faked his own death?

Come on. Fuck sake.
